Nice. What tree did you plant?
Andy, I planted a mix of mainly native trees, native apple,alder,oak,birch,chestnut,mountain ash,sycamore,Scot's pine,walnut,wild cherry,wild pear,westrn red cedar. The alder and are doing really well so far. I had a visit from really knowledgeable DEFRA policy guys back in June and they suggested I remove some side branches from trees that could be future saw logs. Pruning while young produces a more valuable knot free log apparently. Leaving no side branches to restrict machinery and the field is still farmable.
Nice having the nut and fruit trees! Looking forward to seeing future photos 😎
